The project was primarily produced by rising producer Jeff Hazin with Grammy® nominated producer Frank Dukes (Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Post Malone) lending his talents to the song “Self Aware Bitch”. A triad of successful singles set the stage for the six-song EP. On the heels of “Meaner Girl” and “I Try”, she closed out 2019 with the buzzing “No Fun”. Streamed nearly half-a-million times on Spotify, OnesToWatch claimed, “The charming single is a pleasant introducer to her forthcoming EP, Self Aware Bitch” and dubbed it “an impactful introverted anthem.”
On the EP, Anna Sofia said: “Self Aware Bitch is a representation of my high school experience. My whole life in high school revolves around homework, parties, drama, experimenting, and finding yourself - that’s what I love to write about. I had a lot of fun making this EP. I love it when I finally get a good melody down on something I really vibe with, and then figuring out how that makes me feel and how I want to say it. When listening to it I hope people can find a way to relate to it either by thinking back to their own high school days, using it to prepare for high school, or relating it back to their current high school experience. At the end of the day, everyone’s experience is unique but the message I’d like people to take away is to always stay true to yourself. Be unapologetically you, and don’t let anyone change you. Cut those people off!!!!”
Elsewhere on the tracklisting, she sends a heartfelt message with “Waste My Time With You” whose lyrics plead for the affection of another and opener “Self Aware Bitch” serves as something of a call-to-arms with its clever and catchy empowerment. In addition, “Bad Day” co-produced Kid Bloom brings blunt lyrics over a serious beat and ends the EP leaving the listener wanting more. Check out the full tracklisting below.
Contagiously confident and irresistibly melodic, Anna Sofia asserts herself as a powerful presence in 2020.
Dubbed by OnesToWatch as the “bedroom-pop” songstress who “rapidly affirms herself as a new talent to watch – especially in the infancy of her music career,” all signs point to a major breakthrough for this proud Self Aware Bitch.
16-year-old Toronto singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist ANNA SOFIA threads together narrative pop with the scope of a classic nineties teen flick and the unpredictability of 21st century genre-bending. Through a pure perspective only an insider could possess, Anna Sofia chronicles these moments and so much more in her music. Streamed over 2 million times independently as of 2019 and acclaimed by Ones To Watch, Lyrical Lemonade, and Complex who dubbed her, “a prodigious new talent,” she places listeners in the front row of her world on the introductory 2020 EP, Self Aware Bitch [Electric Feel/Republic Records/Universal Music Canada], and her forthcoming full-length debut.
